Very polite - on a few occasions came after the time window I liked. Maybe I should have been more specific on my time expectations. Always provided photos which was nice.

Yes, I’m a veteran and people call me the dog whisperer! I always pay attention to detail especially for those little escape artists. I can teach your dog new tricks. I’ve gone to dog training classes and will start working for Dog Training Elite Texas, soon to train Service Dogs and dogs for Obedience. I also have owned multiple dogs of my own. I love taking care of dogs! I also have immeasurable ...

When Melanie watches your pet

Walks will happen:
•At the closest dog park, we’ll play fetch, learn new skills (sit, stay, lay down...etc.)
•Around my neighborhood.
•I know a few restaurants that allow dogs, I’ve taken my two pups there as well and wouldn’t mind taking yours too!
•You pets will be photographed as much as possible the whole stay, and for every walk. A map will be sent to show where we went for every walk.

*Disclaimer: If I can’t spend all day with your dog, like if I have to leave to the store, they will be safe in their crates or in the doggie area in my home. There's wee-wee pads on the floor since accidents could happen while I’m gone. I change them frequently.

DOGGY DAY CARE - 8 to 10 hours (maximum)

DOG BOARDING – 24 hours+ (Clock starts during drop off with 4 hours stretch for pick – up)*

I don’t include walks in my boarding price. This is due to dogs size and energetic behavior for example a medium sized 16-25lb puppy. Negotiable so no worries just communicate with me.
Therefore, If I have a dog in my care that obviously needs or requires frequent walks that last longer than 30 mins per walk, there will be more than one Walking Charge. Message me for more information on clarification.

***Meet & Greet is a mandatory!!! Unless, it’s a last minute booking, I just need honest truthful facts about the pet that I am taking care of. The more information the better! Don’t forget to update your pets profile information, it helps sitters accept a lot faster***
